I didn't finish untill late in the eveing.Should wait untill tomorow eveing to put the frames and wet supers back on to prevent robbing or can i put them back on in the am.
    Don't think you are on the right road simply because it is a well worn pathway.

    You are usually safe setting supers out for the bees to clean up if you put them out in early morning or late evening. Putting supers in the yard midday can encourage robbing.

    But if adding wet supers to hives, just put them on above the inner cover on strong hives and you shouldn't have to worry about robbing. The bees will dry the wet supers quickly.

    CB is correct. I would wait until the evening that way you get the evening and the morning. Best of both worlds.
    Chuck Norris has a grizzly bear carpet in his room. The bear isn't dead it is just afraid to move.
